Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a situation when a sudden trauma, such as a blow or jolt to the head, causes damage to the brain. In addition, patients and their families have the right to brain injury lawsuit for the damages that commonly result.

Approximately 1.4 million individuals sustain a traumatic brain injury every year in the US. Moreover, in times of combat, 14-20% of surviving casualties suffer a TBI.

How does brain injury occur?

When the skull is  struck by another object, it leads the brain to scrape against the rough and hard interior surface of the skull. Consequently, the force of the blow transmits to the brain after contact, causing bleeding, bruising, and even the destruction of nerve cells.

These traumatic brain injuries lead to impaired physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning.
